A Russian POV on the Nice Tragedy

00 reader igor nice france 160716


There are more than 80 people dead, more than 100 injured. Reportedly, amongst the dead are Russian White émigrés from France, including a Reader at the Russian Orthodox parish in Nice, Igor Sheleshko, and two friends of parish rector Fr Andrei Yeliseyev. Twenty of the dead are parishioners at the local Russian parish; the number of dead and injured includes many children. May God grant rest to the departed and healing to the injured. What’s more, instead of an endless war with Russia, the West should struggle with their real enemies. Why do they show such absurd indulgence in the face of the growing momentum of resurgent Islamic extremism?

15 July 2016. You Can’t Make Shit Like This Up… Gingrich Blames Nice Attack on Obama

00 Fox News Rush Limbaugh Personified. 15.05.13


Newt Gingrich blamed US President Barack Obama for the Nice attack, telling Fox News that it was the fault of “Western élites who lack the guts to do what’s right. That starts with Barack Obama”. The rest of the article is here. If you needed proof that Western neoliberals (both “conservative” and “liberal”) were crackers, totally inept, and unworthy of trust, here it is. This is too much of a muchness…


15 July 2016. Disarm the Hate. Enact Reasonable Gun Control Legislation Now

00 disarm hate 100716


It’s time to stop the intentional misrepresentation of the Second Amendment by the righties. Let’s have reasonable gun laws… let gun-owners be licensed, as drivers are. If you can’t prove that you can shoot a gun safely, you shouldn’t own one. No one should own automatic weapons or machine guns… no other reasonable country allows that. Rural folks need their guns… hunters use their guns safely (by and large)… there are some people who use weapons in their work… I’m not talking about such people. I’m talking about the present anarchy in gun laws. We should have uniform federal laws on gun control, for every state and every city. Its time to stop the NRA’s throttling of reasonable law and regulation.

No nihilism… no libertarianism… no Ayn Rand-style licence or anarchy… if you want such, prove to me that mankind isn’t fallen and that its perfectible. I doubt that you can do it…


15 July 2016. Vova on Terrorists

Now, that’s what I call a reasonable and pragmatic division of labour. God is in His Heaven… the Tsar (ruler) is here on Earth. Both have their proper roles. Vladimir Vladimirovich expressed it well.
